RATINGS

96James Suckling

An opulent pinot noir that shows flowers, dried strawberries, blackberries and orange peel. Medium to full body, firm and tight tannins and a vertical and long finish.

95Wine Enthusiast

With its sophisticated mix of mineral, acid and tart fruits, this seductive effort pleases from start to finish. Supple and dense, it's got strawberry, blueberry, plum and black cherry, a touch of chocolate, and that underlying streak of mineral. All these elements are in good proportion and finish with an appealing silky texture.

94Wine Spectator

Discreet at first but then slowly blooms into a supple and rich wine. Raspberry and spice aromas open to subtly powerful cherry, dark tea and orange peel flavors that finish with polished tannins.

91The Wine Advocate

...notions of red currant jelly, Black Forest cake and chocolate mint with hints of black pepper, fertile soil and cloves, plus a waft of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the concentrated berry preserves flavors fill the mouth with voluptuous fruit, focused by firm, grainy tannins and a crisp backbone, finishing long and fruity.

REGION

United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley

Willamette Valley AVA was established in 1983, and it is the oldest appellation in Oregon. Oregon’s modern wine industry began in the Willamette Valley in the 1960s when artists, vagabond winemakers, and U.C. Davis oenology graduates looking for new territory started their own, small, off-the-grid wineries. The appellation is the state’s largest, and it extends 175 miles from Columbia River on the Washington/Oregon border to just south of Eugene, near central Oregon. The Willamette River runs through the area, helping to give the appellation a mild year-round climate. There are six smaller sub-appellations within this AVA, but altogether the Willamette Valley has the largest concentration of wineries in Oregon, as well as the majority of the state’s most famous producers. Pinot Noir is king here, followed by Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling. To most admirers of Oregon Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley offers the most distinctive wine choices in the state.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
